Girls Varsity Basketball · Dave Butcher named Head Girls Basketball Coach, pending board approval


Westerville South High School Athletic Department is excited announced that Dave Butcher has been recommended as the next Head Coach of the Girls Basketball Program.

Dave is unquestionably one of the best high school basketball coaches in the state of Ohio. He has a total of 747 wins and six State Championships on his coaching resume, so we believe his experience fits nicely with the caliber of athletes we have here within the Westerville South Girls Basketball program.

Coach Butcher previously coached the Pickerington North Girls Basketball Team and was named USA Today’s National Coach of the Year. In 2016, The Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association presented Butcher with its Paul Walker Award in recognition of his contributions to the sport. He was inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008, the Greater Columbus Basketball Legends Hall of Fame in 2015, and the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the O.C.C Hall of Fame  in 2018. The Westerville City School District Board of Education is expected to vote on Butcher’s appointment during an upcoming board meeting.
